You feel yourself struggling to maintain what is while desperately getting back to what once was for yourself and your family. The feelings of loneliness and sadness follow you no matter what is going on in your life and it is draining you. Everyone around you depends on you to keep going but it's so difficult to imagine living like this another day.

Your authentic self is waiting for you! Challenging or traumatic life experiences often overshadow our authentic selves. We may feel stuck, lack motivation, or chronically procrastinate. Irrational and self defeating thoughts lead to fear, anxiety, depression, excessive worry, and may manifest in physical symptoms. When we live in this cycle too long it becomes our normal. We may recycle past trauma into present relationships. We find harmful ways to cope; such as people pleasing, codependency and addictive behaviors including, but not limited to substance abuse.

You keep searching the internet hoping to find something that will help you find normalcy again. Everything feels like a struggle anymore and you can't recall the last time you were actually happy or even content. You find yourself with an open bottle of wine almost every night or hiding in a closet to catch your breath from your life. Looking for answers with food, alcohol, exercise, shopping, accomplishments, or even attention has left you exhausted and empty. You have a great life but it doesn't feel great living it.
